Choroní Transportation

  • Taxi / Bus to Choroni

    You can go to Choroni in auto but you must be careful since the way is realy narrow and with lot of curves So I would advice to drive slowly for the first time.If you do not go in auto, you have to get to the terminal in Maracay City and take a cab or bus to the town. They are available everyday.
